Would be nice to add the #1 area:

1. Washington, D.C.
The nation's capital is also the capital of gun deaths. There were 24.5 firearm-related deaths per 100,000 people in Washington, D.C.

State your source.
Here's mine: http://m.theatlanticcities.com/neighborhoods/...

Now, that's deaths by gun per 100,000. That's very general. It's easy to say this state has a Republican Governor, or votes this way or that way. To be accurate, you must look deeper. How many large cities does the State have? How does the big city gun death rate compare to the rural areas? A State with a smaller population will generally have a higher per 100,000 ratio of gun deaths. Did the State recently elect a Republican Governor? It may have been Democrat for decades until recently. Even with a Republican Governor, the large cities generally are Democrat ruled. How many hunting accidents occur in a given State? How many suicides happen in a given State? Why do so many suicides occur in a given state? Is it the Democrat induced loss of jobs? How many gangs exist in a given State? That usually is directly proportional to how many big cities exist in a given State. How many of those gun related deaths were justifiable homicides or self defense related? How many of the shooting deaths were committed with stolen or illegal guns?

Try again! You failed miserably. You basically attempted the equivalent of providing basketball statistics for a baseball discussion.

"May have", huh?

The postman could be carrying a bazooka to blow in your front door. If you shoot him as he walks up the pavement you "may be saving your own life by not just being a victim."

I should have shot that kid with the hockey stick the other day in town. You never know if he was thinking about hitting me with it.

from DC huh .........

Washinton DC (district of Columbia) isn't in a state. it is it's own district. a long time ago when the states were fighting over who would have the capitol they decided to make a seperate place for Washington so that no state could claim it.

Voting rights of citizens in the District of Columbia differ from the rights of citizens in each of the 50 U.S. states. The United States Constitution grants each state voting representation in both houses of the United States Congress. As the U.S. capital, the District of Columbia is a special federal district, not a state, and therefore does not have voting representation in the Congress. The Constitution grants the Congress exclusive jurisdiction over the District in "all cases whatsoever."

In the United States House of Representatives, the District is represented by a delegate, who is not allowed to vote on the House floor but can vote on procedural matters and in congressional committees.

CERTAINLY WASN'T A COWARD:

ORANGE CITY, Fla.(AP)— Police arrested a central Florida man who shot at the car of a fleeing shoplifting suspect in a Walmart parking lot.

Orange City police say Jose Manuel Martinez was charged with aggravated assault and shooting into an occupied vehicle on Wednesday.

Martinez told police he joined the chase. And when he couldn't stop Mckee, he pulled a 9 mm handgun and shot four times at the vehicle, saying he wanted to "mark the car" for police. Martinez has a concealed weapons permit.

Texas Man Takes on 3 Home Intruders With a Rifle — Find Out What Happened

http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2013/02/28/te...

When Randy Magdeleno arrived home Wednesday morning, he found three burglary suspects running around his Houston home. It was a terrifying situation, he said, but thankfully he had his gun to protect him.

The problem was, the .22LR bolt-action rifle was unloaded. But the burglars didn’t know that.

The incident occurred around 8:30 a.m. Wednesday. Magdeleno said he heard voices as soon as he entered his home after dropping his wife off at work.

"Aided"? No. But we made a profit with Germany (AS ALWAYS), yes.
Germany has been part of the Hansa Company since Viking times. South Sweden, North Germany, the Platdeutsch territories, Poland, Denmark, and the Baltic countries all together were almost like an international nation onto itself and we even spoke a language that was a mixture of them so we could understand one another. Although we didn't like it, the fact that the Nazi party had taken control of Germany it was none of our business, and given the historical events that preceded it we could certainly understand how and why it happened. No, we do not understand the Holocaust however.
Having said that, we didn't specifically do business with "the Nazis". We did business with Germany as we'd been doing since long before the United Snakes was even "discovered".
I know they don't teach you very much in the United Snakes. I guess your schools think if they taught you anything with truth in it you might all begin to think for yourselves ... then you'd demand Democratic principles to be instated. But perhaps they just think that the truth is too complicated for you?
Because Sweden made a profit they couldn’t have aided the German War Machine? Really?

Because Sweden aided the Nazi’s your nation is just as guilty as Germany for the atrocities of WW-II.

No, you are wrong.
Do you do know the diff between a crime (or the statistic of that crime) and being charged with that crime?.... nope you don't. You ought to know the diff .... they're in your own words, "states charges must be filed against a suspect". CHARGE - CRIME. No same ting man.
Now being charged with a crime is not the same as committing a crime. If you actually believe that you’re presuming everyone charged is guilty. A charge and a crime are not the same thing.

You’re being dishonest.

The pizza delivery person defended himself. He had a gun pointed at him. Would he have been shot after he gave up everything? We don’t know. Should someone with a gun being pointed at them have to wait until the criminal pulls the trigger?

Yeah, but it could've been better - had he just handed over his pizzas and cell phone. Let the cops pick them up.
Doesn’t always work that way. Often when victims of crime co-operate they’re assaulted or killed anyway.

Would you mandate someone wait to defend themselves until they’re assaulted or killed?

"Possibly" is not fact. Out of the more than 4,500 shootings in the US yesterday, how many involved someone getting killed over a pizza and a cell phone?
Think of this as your 6-sigma question of the day.
You’re correct possibly is not fact. But the fact was the delivery person’s life was in immediate danger. He had a gun pointed at him by a criminal.

His actions were appropriate.
